ROMNEY LOSS MEANS NO NATIONAL GIG FOR PALMETTO STATE GOVERNOR
“It’s a great day in South Carolina …”
Errrr … maybe not.
Palmetto State residents are stuck with scandal-scarred S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley for the next two years after U.S. President Barack Obama cruised to an easier-than-expected victory over “Republican” presidential nominee Mitt Romney this week.
Although she repeatedly downplayed speculation about accepting a job in a prospective Romney administration, it was widely assumed that Haley – the highest-profile South Carolina politician to endorse the former Massachusetts governor ahead of South Carolina’s “First in the South” presidential primary – would receive an appointment in the event he won.
Now Haley must decide whether to continue chasing national press clippings 24/7 or actually stop for two seconds and try to govern this ass backward state.
What will she do? You tell us …
